    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Looking at that deck post footer, really puts that thing in perspective size wise.

    Man, that's big. How much does that barrel weigh? Probably too heavy for turkey hunting, right?

    I would love to have that on my front lawn. Really.
    What is the story with the barrel? Is it made of wood?

    Would be neat on the lawn, wouldn't it?

    I can't figure the barrel out either. Looks like that last picture is of the barrel "insert (?)" that's only a foot or so deep, and maybe fits into a turned wooden 'barrel.' I dunno...

    I did note the phillips head screws in the pic just before that, though, so it's been made - or at least repaired - during the 20th century.

    I also see there's no elevation aiming wedge in the new carriage - at least not yet...

    It seems to me that the whole premise of "Political Correctness," however well-intentioned it may be, runs the danger of uniform mediocrity becoming the norm.

    There are a few things not finished yet. Only today did I find the rot in the barrel. The barrel is fiberglass, wood
    When I pilled the plug out I found spent gun powder residue, probably from the movie usage.

    I was just going to do a cosmetic job but taking it apart found extensive turmite damage and still finding it. Lol
